AMSA Annual Regulatory Plan

The AMSA Annual Regulatory Plan [PDF icon PDF: 479Kb]

AMSA publishes regulatory plans to provide business and the community with information about planned changes to regulatory instruments, such as Marine Orders and Standards, to make it easier for business and the community to take part in the development of those instruments that are likely to affect them.

AMSA publishes an annual regulatory plan early in each financial year and may publish revised annual regulatory plans during the year when appropriate.

The regulatory plans contain information on:

  • changes to business regulation that occurred during the previous financial year; and
  • details of legislative or other action planned for the current financial year that could lead to changes in business regulation.

While there may be some regulatory activities that AMSA is unable to forecast, these activities will involve consultation with affected parties and will be recorded in future regulatory plans.
